The ultimate battle between Patty and Ellen is on! Each week, Josh Payne will give you an episode-by-episode breakdown of the developing conflict between the two women, but ultimately it’s up to you to decide who won each round. After watching last night’s episode, who do you think is ahead? Vote at the bottom of this post.

Though we pit Ellen and Patty against each other more directly than in prior seasons, we wanted to explore a story where they could find common ground, albeit briefly, amidst the tumult. So we decided to make them partners in crime.

Ellen and Patty are both worried their case is on the verge of disappearing when McClaren offers Rachel Walling $3 million to settle it. They work together to procure evidence that McClaren did indeed attack Naomi Walling in a hotel room and thus convince Rachel to turn down the settlement offer.
